Children

Here at MCF we know that God desires a relationship with everyone, even the youngest of children. Our children’s groups are meant to help a child learn about God at an age-appropriate level. Groups are divided by age and are dismissed following the morning Praise and Worship portion of the service.

Parent’s Heart/MCF Family Room (0 – 9 mo) A cozy room with comfortable seating, including rocking chairs, a changing table, and more! Feel free to take your little one for care by you, the parent. This room located in the back corner of the sanctuary. It is also accessible from the hall.

Sweet Hearts A (9 mo – 2 yrs) Caring adults and teens staff our little ones nursery. Here your little one can play with other youngsters both inside and outside (weather permitting) in a safe, loving environment while you enjoy the morning service. This nursery is located behind the sanctuary, directly across from the Parent’s Heart/MCF Family Room.

Sweet Hearts B (2 – 3 yrs) Caring adults and teens staff our toddler nursery. Here your little one can play with other youngsters both inside and outside (weather permitting) in a safe, loving environment while you enjoy the morning service. Care givers also share a short Bible lesson, geared just for your little one! This nursery is located directly across from the hallway entrance to the sanctuary.

Tender/Loving Hearts (4, 5 year olds) Our caring teacher teams combine a Bible lesson, prayer time, play, and snack time to provide a safe, loving atmosphere for your child to spend their morning with us. You’ll find this classroom a short distance from the main sanctuary.

Seeking Hearts (6 – 11 yrs) Children’s Church is a multi-age group where our staff desires to provide your child with knowledge to grow deeper in their relationship with God. Through Bible lessons and hands-on activities, we explore God’s Word in a fun and exciting way! We meet just down from the Tender/Loving Hearts group in the fellowship hall.

Passionate Hearts (5th/6th/7th grades) For the girls, God’s Gurlz, for the guys, God’s Guyz. Middle School students may decide with their parents whether to stay in the main sanctuary for the message, or attend a Middle School class. Here they will get a message geared for them and have a time of discussion, sharing and prayer. (*5th graders may also choose to remain in the Seeking Hearts Children’s Church group) This group comes to the Seeking Hearts room before heading to their class area.

Also, the children ages 4-13 participate in Ministry Teams on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Ministry Teams teach the kids ways to reach their world for Christ!

Ages of groups are a guideline.  If you have questions about where your child would be best served, please see Lisa Ware, Director of Children’s Ministries.

***All groups have access to outdoor play as time and weather permit***
